Homeopathy - an Introduction for Farmers & Smallholders

Tuesday 3rd November 2015

10am - 4pm


Homeopathy is a gentle system of medicine that has no side effects and is a first choice of treatment on organic farms. There is increasing evidence of its effectiveness in the farm situation. This day is intended as an introduction to the use of homeopathic remedies to help prevent disease and deal with simple ailments on the farm or small-holding. 

The day will include a brief discussion of the theory and use of homeopathy and will then go on to look at specific approaches to disease in the more common farm animals, including sheep, cattle, pigs and chickens. 

At the end of the day those attending should have the knowledge and confidence to treat their animals using basic homeopathic principles and remedies.

''I want to say how very good the smallholders homeopathy course was. The tutors were perfectly thorough and clear, and sent us home with notes of the same tone. They covered a huge area in a short time, and still gave every individual time to have anything explained until they understood. Jane and Peter were also really open minded when it came to any doubts about how the remedies might work, and with 70 years of veterenary experience were genuinely convincing that this medicine works (not that I needed persuading).''
